and a half years, and then upon retirement from the army continued at the pentagon is deputy assistant secretary of defense, homeland defense, and america security affairs but please join me in welcoming steve bucci. [applause] >> let me add my welcome to all of you. i think you're going to have a real treat this morning, as john mentioned him on a special forces officer by profession, and so this area is near and dear to my heart. this is kind of what we do. they don't let me do it anymore. i mentioned to max when he came in a little historical artifact, and that when i was a cadet at west point i bought a book that had just been published, a two volume set. it was called war in the shadows, the guerrilla in history. that book from 1975 intel now, really has been sort of benchmark for this kind of historical review of the subject area. that's a long time for a book to keep that sort of position. well, with apologies, i think his book is being replaced now, and max has done that with this book which is on sale outside, "invisible armies," he i think you set a new benchmark for the subj

: the pentagon facing sweeping budget cuts which lefers secretary leon panetta would be a threat to our security. >> i don't want to see taxes increased but i would like to see the president call the leaders over to the white house and say, look, we have got to solve this problem. outgoing secretary of defense, leon panetta, is one of the most widely respected persons in washington, d.c. he's saying this will devastate tour security. republicans and democrats are responsible for this new cliff. and i'll take responsibility for the republicans but we have got to stop it, we have to avoid it. bill: you are going to hold a hearing tomorrow on these cuts. what is your best solution? >> i believe the cuts are going to happen. the president is insistent on tax increases or cuts and i think he gets spending cuts, about half of them are in the military. the best solution is let the defense department target those cuts rather than take across the board cuts. i think they will happen. i'm not going to be for tax increases and i suspect there will be no taxes. bill: just to be clear, the sequestration will

to be very fancy, the white house event, the pentagon event. and i figured the least i could do as somebody who -- they had been so nice to me in writing this book, they spent hours with me telling their stories, the least i could do is throw them a reunion. so we had a little get together with some pizza and beer and wings and there was some revelry as one might expect with somebody said to me, open bar with a bunch of troops, you're a brave man. i'm certainly not a brave man. but in any case, it was a lot of fun and fun for the troops to see each other after two years away, after they got back from the deployment. >> well done. and excellent book, the outpost, an untold story of american valor. let me show it to our viewers. i think people want to get more information, this is the place to get it in this very thick, long book, well done. >> thank you. you know, there are a lot of brave troops and their stories aren't told enough by any of us in the media. and so this was a small attempt to rectify that. >> thank you very much. and our thanks to clint romesha and all the young men who were
